Santa's Reindeer Day at the Outlawz Festive Friday's Challenge

December is half way through and I am still cranking out Christmas cards!  But these two I've posted here are starts for next year!! I'm patting myself on the back for that!!

This week at Festive Friday's Challenge at the Outlawz, we have four new themes and the one I picked is Santa's Reindeer Day!   The other themes are Go Caroling Day, Forefather's Christmas, and Look For An Evergreen Day. 

For my first card, I used digital images by Hero Arts and sold by our sponsor a2zScrapbooking.  The Merry Christmas background is from a set of various backgrounds. The deer and Christmas tree and Christmas star are images from the Swirl Christmas set, also by Hero Arts. I love these digi sets because you get lots for one low price. The Happy Christmas banner is from a set by Stampin' Up! called Seasonal Bells. The green bottom layer is from my paper stash which keeps growing miraculously!! The twine and rhinestones are also from my personal stash!  No coloring involved here. The deer and the Christmas tree come pre-colored in the set as well as black and white images.

Card number 2 is one of my favorites! The image is a pre-colored background digital image from the Winter Forest digi set by Hero Arts and sold by a2zScrapbooking. I added some more blue to the image with my Copic markers and also added some fawn color to the cute deer. The dotted paper is by Close to my Heart Stamps. The Wonderland die cut is by Tim Holtz and is part of a holiday set. I made the snow sparkle with Diamond Stickles.

Festive Friday's has two sponsors every month!

Our first sponsor is a2zScrapbooking.  The prize for the monthly winner will be a digi kit. What fun!! a2zScrapbooking sells so many products and they are the exclusive dealer for Hero Arts Digital products!

I hope you will check out the Outlawz!
